Child Care Programs

NYC’s Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) recently introduced a new feature called Program Pins, which can be used to quickly find programs on the DiscoverDYCD website.

If you’re a parent and you’d like to enroll your child in a DYCD program, you can now simply enter the program pin for the corresponding location!

Here’s how it works:

  • Visit the Discover DYCD website
  • Enter your desired Program Pin in the Search Bar
  • Click ‘Search’ and then you’ll be able to sign up for the program!
Below is a list of all of CAMBA’s Program Pins:
Eligibility Requirements:

Each CAMBA program has specific eligibility requirements tailored to your child’s age and grade level:

  • Elementary School COMPASS Programs: for students from Kindergarten to 5th Grade.
  • Middle School SONYC Programs: for students from 6th Grade to 8th Grade.
  • Beacons and Cornerstone Centers: for students from Kindergarten to 12th Grade. Please note that their schedules may vary.
  • Kindergarten Requirement: To enroll in our after-school programs, students must be currently enrolled in Kindergarten. To enroll in our summer programs, students must have completed Kindergarten.
Please Note:
CAMBA cannot guarantee every child a spot. There are additional steps and paperwork you must bring into the program office to finish enrolling. There may also be a waiting list, but you will be contacted by someone via phone or email as soon as possible about your application.
